ENGLISH: this is the fountain in the forecourt of the New South Wales Parliament House. The front facade of the Parliament is quite old, circa 1830, but the rear of the building is very modern overlooking the Domain. And in the forecourt there is this modern fountain which to me looks like an alien landing ship.
ITALIAN: questa è la fontana nel cortile esterno del Nuovo Galles del Sud alla Casa di Parlamento. La facciata anteriore del Parlamento è molto vecchio, circa 1830, ma la parte posteriore del palazzo è molto moderno con vista sul dominio. E nel piazzale c'è questa moderna fontana che per me assomiglia a uno straniero di sbarco delle navi.

Great shot. Abstract in nature, makes you want to keep looking.
I note you have used quite a fast speed. It might be fun to try it on slower speeds such as 1/2 or 1".

Ciao cara. Sure it's not a UFO with a perm?Strong visual capture, sharp, with excellent texture. Frame complements the image well. Saluti. Klaudio.

What a lovely fountain made of optical fibers, and you have produced and excellent shot. The simple but elegant composition and the light management are complementary aspects of the photograph. The note in two equivalent statements, one in English, the other in Italian, is a Rosetta Stone like gift for us.

I like how you have framed the fountain to produce this very symmetrical image. The exposure is well managed to capture the streams of water and make them look like glass rods.

I was first thinking it was a B&W photo, but not, it is a color photo. The lightning is good to put in evidence the lines of water coming from the fountain.
The framing is perhaps a bit too close by cutting the edges, but the overall composition still works like this.

That's a cool shot! Really artistic as I like how this fountain sprays the water. Wonderful POV with good light and great details! Well done!

You've taken a quality shot of this fountain, probably one of the best image from yourself that I can recall. Good light and point of view! Very well done!
Have a great day

This is a very creative tight cropped image which goes well with the title. The image is superbly sharp with lines that are so fine. Excellent work

Top shot, ticks all the boxes. Love the reflections of the other two space ships.

E' un periodo per me con poco tempo libero. E poco da dedicareagli amici.
Ma una visita alla tua gallery...ottimo scatto..invidiabile...la tecnica di cogliere tutto il getto d'acqua mantenendo nitidezza .

Beautiful light and colours. Very good job

This is one of those photos I like but I don't really know to explain why. First of all, it shows nothing recognizable and without your explanation I wouldn't even be able to figure out what it is. But it's just so cool and I simply love it.
macjake (39235) 2010-03-27 11:13
sometimes its fun to go thru galleries, and see what you did a while ago.
this is my first time seeing this, and its wonderful.
excellent waterfall effect, even at the 160th shutter speed, it looks like a slow shutter speed effect.
love this one!
excellent gallery aswell
